Pucci Initials E.P.: Emilio Pucci show delights in Florence
Fashion & Leather Goods
A year after her arrival as artistic director, Camille Miceli presented her first Pucci collection in Florence. The choice of venue is an homage to founder Emilio Pucci and his ancestral home. Dubbed “Initials E.P.” the brightly colored collection mirrors the rich Tuscan palette on the banks of the Arno.
A mission patch designed by Emilio Pucci for the Apollo 15 crew in 1971 inspired Camille Miceli’s collection. Air and space impart a pulsing freshness to silhouettes as delightfully surprising as they are sophisticated. A flowing caftan in the Pesce motif opened the show, followed by luminous all-white looks, knits enlivened with the Girandole print, and denim reworked with the signature Marmo print. Beach looks featured long zip pulls like those on wet suits, embellished with strass. Shimmering silk twill is laminated with gold foil for an iridescent effect on dresses. Accessories are equally fun, including the Daily bucket bag or the Puccinella in straw, paired with platform sandals or pointy heels embellished with little fishes. Floaters printed with colorful Pucci prints are the new musts for the season. The finale was a huge wow: a dazzling balloon silhouette, followed by eight catsuits in Pucci prints, layered with gold jewelry and a T-shirt assembled from chains to close the show.
The sky is the limit for this new collection ready for takeoff from Florence to the moon.
